Soon after the title obtained by Kron Gracie at ADCC 2013 , the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo received an email from Rickson Gracie, explaining that now his son would seek new career goals. On Instagram, Kron clarified the issue, writing that he will now focus on his MMA debut, which should occur in 2014.
Other two to leave the Expo card after the ADCC were Roberto Cyborg and Marcus Buchecha.
Jake , who defeated Demian Maia by split decision at UFC Barueri , on October 9, will have a middleweight (82kg) no-gi, 15min long bout with no points or advantages.
